Sentosa Island, Singapore - Singapore Cable Car POV (2018)
Singapore Cable Car Celebrates 45 Years of Scenic Views
The Singapore Cable Car is a gondola lift providing an aerial link from Mount Faber on the main island of Singapore to the resort island of Sentosa across the Keppel Harbour. Opened on 15 February 1974, it was the first aerial ropeway system in the world to span a harbour. However, it is not the first aerial ropeway system to span the sea. For instance, Awashima Kaijō Ropeway in Japan, built in 1964, goes over a short strait to an island. Although referred to by its operators as a cable car, the listed system is in fact a monocable gondola lift and not an aerial tramway. A round-trip ticket currently costs SGD 33 for adults and SGD 22 for children.
